Settlers build new illegal outpost near Nablus

March 3, 2013 5:47 P.M. (Updated: March 6, 2013 7:46 P.M.)
NABLUS (Ma'an) -- Israeli settlers erected a new outpost on Sunday on a hilltop east of Nablus, a Palestinian Authority said.

Ghassan Daghlas, who monitors settlement activities in the northern West Bank, said residents of the Elon Moreh settlement installed 10 mobile homes in Ras Hazim fields, a few hundred meters from Deir al-Hatab village.

Settlers used bulldozers to dig a road to Ras Hazim, Daghlas told Ma'an.

He said farmers would no longer be able to access 100 acres of private Palestinian land.

All settlements are illegal under international law. Settlement outposts are also illegal under Israeli law.
